Practice Based Physiotherapy

The Practice based physiotherapist service is provided by registered physiotherapists who are the first point of contact for patients with musculoskeletal pain, providing expertise and increased capacity to general practice and giving patients faster access to the right care.

Our current physiotherapists are Caitriona and James.

Over the course of his career her has specialised in the management of musculoskeletal conditions and is particularly interested in the management of trauma related injuries.

As first contact practitioners Caitriona and James can provide expert assessment, diagnosis and advice on musculoskeletal conditions including;

  • Back or neck pain
  • Sprains or strains
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint or muscle pain                        

If appropriate they can arrange for further investigations, such as x-rays or scans and refer onward to hospital based specialists.
